Easy Grammar Plus Set
This package includes the following items:
Start by learning a list of prepositions? Unusual, yes, but effective. Then, by identifying and crossing out prepositional phrases, students can see the core of each sentence. Covering parts of speech, capitalization, punctuation, and sentence writing, concepts are presented in small, understandable increments, followed by plenty of practice. The overall approach is mastery, utilizing a system of sentence labeling rather than diagramming. Correcting/grading is easy, requiring a minimum of teacher time and might be done by the student himself (with supervision). Course components include a Teacher Edition, Student Workbook and Test Book. Each grade level Teacher Edition provides bite-size lessons, student practice and assessment pages, and those same pages with answers filled in. Both the practice pages and the tests are reproducible for families. Student Workbooks include lesson and practice pages. Test Books provide pre and post tests as well as sectional tests.
Grades 5, 6 and EG Plus each introduce 53 prepositions. The writing units in both grades 5 & 6 cover appositives, semicolon use, and compound sentences. Grade 6 continues with subordinate clauses and introductory participial phrases. The Plus course includes expanded coverage of independent and dependent clauses.
Mastery of basic grammar facts. Independent student work. Lots of review and practice. That’s what Easy Grammar provides. It’s convenient and takes no teacher prep time. The general idea is to introduce grammar gently to young students (Easy Grammar Daily Guided Teaching, grades 1-2). The middle school years (grades 3-7) focus on systematic instruction and provide lots of practice to master the basics as well as daily review. The secondary years (Easy Grammar Ultimate, grades 8-12) continue daily review, coupled with some advanced instruction. The courses vary in structure at different grade levels. Grades 3-6 are similar in structure but grade-level appropriate. Easy Grammar Plus is a course that can be used either in 7th grade or as a complete grammar review for older students. Daily Grams, available for grades 3-7, supplements and complements the EG series by providing daily review.
Each grade level Teacher Edition provides bite-size lessons, student practice and assessment pages, and those same pages with answers filled in. Both the practice pages and the tests are reproducible for families. Student Workbooks include lesson and practice pages. Test Books (available for Grades 3 and up) provide pre and post tests as well as sectional tests. Grade level Sets include the Teacher Edition, Student Book and Test Book (if available for that level).
These materials offer a complete and comprehensive coverage of all three elements - grammar (i.e. parts of speech, complete sentences), usage (i.e. homophones, figures of speech, proper word choice to convey meaning), and mechanics (i.e. punctuation, capitalization).
